|CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT
We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reachdown for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.
|Reprinted from the Newsletter of the Henry Shaw Cactus & Succulent Society, St Louis. MO. South and Southwest Africa are the home of the genus Titanopsis, with its 8 species of dwarf clump-forming plants. The species have variously colored leaves withrough, fissured, pimply ends, and they form low, clustering rosettes. Yellow flowers are produced in autumn. They grow quickly from seed and require a porous compost and careful watering, being kept dry in the winter and spring resting period. It is a very rewarding succulent and can be cultivated on window sills in the home. Titanopsis also tolerate intense heat and heavy frost. Titanopsis are truly impressive plants, with unique leaves. Being a dwarf, you wont have to devote much space for an impressive representation of the genus. Titanopsis calcarea is the best-known species, with whitish tubercles at the tips of blunt leaves. They are propagated from seed or by division of larger clumps. For a really odd succulent that is sure to be a conversation piece, add a Titanopsis to your collection whether it is in a greenhouse or windowsill.|
